Question about Sony FD Trinitron WEGA KV-20FS100 20" TV

1 Answer

Dead from cable surge from blown Time Warner splitter.

Techman was helping me, but he logged out. I have the TV open, and found from the repair manual that there's a F601 fuse that could be the culprit, but I can't find it. Is that a standard glass fuse or something else?

On that Sony the only glass fuse would be on the primary side where the A.C. cord enters the TV. If it's blown then you have a bad rectifier diode or some other shorted power supply component.

My 32 incn Hisense Roku tv can I hook it up to my time warner cable instead of wireless connection

Yes, you can. You would need to hook the cable box up to the tv using an HDMI cable for it to work. Hope it helped!

Need Time Warner Remote code for LG 42LB5D HDTV

For Time Warner Cable digital remote controls to work with your 42" LG HDTV, do the following:

1. Press "TV" and "OK" simultaneously for 3 seconds, until the button "tv" light on the remote is on.

2. Enter the TV code. In this case, it's "113". With the right code, your component will turn off. Quickly press the power button on your digital cable remote to turn it back on. Press the "TV" button again so that the remote saves that code.

Vizio tv freezing up

You're not getting enough signal to your cable box. You most likely have too many splitters on your cables and or your cable is not hooked up close enough to a line. Your cable guy will probably need to come out and string out a new cable line from the telephone wire, to your house, to your TV. It's typically a free service with most cable companies (at least Time Warner).

Picture in picture problem

When you use the Time Warner Digital box, you're using the tuner inside that box rather than the tuner inside your TV to select a channel. Picture in picture TV's have two tuner's inside so you can view two channels, but they can only tune the analog channels from your cable company, and only if it's hooked up in a manner that will permit this to happen.

So you only have one digital tuner (the Time Warner Box) so you can only view one channel at a time even though your TV supports Picture in Picture.

It MAY be possible to have limited use of the PIP if you connect your TV in a different way. Your Time Warner box is most likely connected to your TV set with composite cables, those are the Yellow, Red, White cables. If you buy a coaxial cable splitter and split the cable before it goes into the Time Warner box you can then run a coax cable into both the Time Warner box and the coax input on your TV. This would allow you to tune the analog Time Warner channels with both of your TV's tuners. In my area I think the first 60 channels or so are still available in analog, but there is no way to watch any of the higher premium channels without the Time Warner box.

If you go through these steps and you select the coax input on your TV your PIP will work on the lower channels. It MAY be possible to tell your TV to display the input from the composite cables on one of the PIP screens and the input from the coax on the other, but I kind of doubt it.

I know this sounds complicated and if you're not familiar with the way all this works it is complicated. The reason lots of people won't respond to this kind of question on this site is because there is no easy fix and by trying to help I run the risk of getting a bad rating. I don't get paid for this, I just like trying to help, so if I have not explained this in a way that's helpful to you please ask some additional questions before you give me a bad rating. Thanks.
